( Wikileaks has reported that the US government has been covertly funding the Syrian opposition since 2006. One expect that CIA Special Activities Division teams were deployed to Syria during the uprising to ascertain rebel groups, leadership and potential supply routes; much more likely involved in seeding what could successfully be called a civil war, and not a multinational conspiracy against Syria.
A whole series of appointed US officials before Hillary Clinton have for decades have used Islamic terror starting with Presidential Adviser Brzezinski having Carter fund, arm and train rural warlords to creating a civil war against a very popular women's liberating socialist government in Kabul, thereafter bragging of having set a trap to sucker in the Soviets by subsequently inviting in Wahabi sect Arabs like Osama bin Laden into someone else's Afghanistan. 
Since the end of the unbelievably profitable for Wall Street Second World War, tens of millions of innocent children, women and men have died right in their own beloved countries during US prosecutable regime change wars from Greece, Korea, Iran, Vietnam, Laos, Guatemala, Congo, Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Lebanon, Cuba, Panama, Somalia, Grenada, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Yemen and Syria, and the US has gotten away with it so far. All these tens of millions died so investors in the illegal and genocidal use of US Armed Forces, CIA, sanctions and US media could make money from wars that at the same time brought the investors increased financial hegemony and more opportunity for capital and power acquisition. Now presidential expected-to-be Secretary Hillary Clinton warns the world about Russia and China.
Do people remember that when this Presidential election campaign was getting under way, the genocidal media cartel justifying every one of past US wars, was preparing the public for an inevitable conflict with Russia and China? The independent journalists were all writing doomsday warnings of a coming a third world war.
Wars promoting media has been making a blatant over the top show of frightened opposition to candidate Hillary Clinton's Republican Party nominee, ridiculing him, stigmatizing him and carefully avoiding coverage of his maintaining, among other things, that Clinton as Secretary of State has brought "death and destruction overseas"; that "the five trillion dollars spent on wars for regime change in the Middle East should have been spent in the US rebuilding its infrastructure;" that NATO is obsolete; that the US should seek friendship with China and Russia; that he likes Xi Jinping and Putin, (America's perennial and sacrosanct mortal enemies!) and would get along fine with them. Trump has called the last two term Republican President, George Bush, a liar for having lied about Iraq having weapons of mass destruction and has voiced suspicion about the 9/11 attack that happened so easily on Bush's watch. Trump has disputed hailing Senator John McCain, 2008 Republican presidential candidate, a hero for having been shot down in Vietnam while bombing Vietnam, and has condemned and ridiculed eighty percent of media's reporters and commentators as pathetic liars (which comes to the what is in reality that hundred percent, who are willing to preposterously describe America's running crimes against humanity as heroic deeds in defense of American freedom). Trump has asked, "why must the United States lead the world everywhere on the globe and play the role of the world's policeman, now for example in Ukraine? "Trump asks, "why does the United States always pursue regime changes - Iraq, Libya, Ukraine, and now it wants a regime change in Syria, Damascus, when the result is disaster." This wholesale attack on the 'patriotic' war establishment is unheard of.
(Wow! Will a US president, spokesperson for Wall Street, someday go further and admit that the wars in Vietnam, Laos, Dominical Republic, Iraq, Libya, Cambodia, et cetera, were not heroic after all, as a start of telling the whole genocidal truth about all the rest of US foreign policy that former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark in his book,The Fire This Time - US War Crimes in the Gulf, calls, "the greatest crime against humanity since WWII.")
The present US election, extremely overvalued by media as a harbinger of future events, might at least be displaying a struggle within the elite investment community that disposes of most of the wealth of humanity in insane and genocidal conflict that is detrimental to the survival of the planet.

Powerful Investors Have Trump Call for an About Face, OpEdNews Op 7/17/2016, http://www.opednews.com/articles/Economic-Hegemony-Loss-to-by-Jay-Janson-Capitalism-Over-Humanity_China_Economics_Future-160717-871.htmlin which I note that the current media managed US election process seems a playing out in public of indecision within the rich one tenth of one percent, who rule America and most of the world, indecision over whether to switch to less profitable investing in their home base America and Europe, or to continue wildly enriching themselves, heavily investing in the much higher profit rendering low wage economies of the rest of the world, thereby accelerating forward the arrival of the time when those Third World nations led by China will overtake the US and Europe in economic and political power and demand equity.
writer ends with a post election cautionary: since presidents are not
in charge of much of anything, probably not even there own photo ops,
the world could well experience war during an administration led by
peace advocate Trump, and conversely, peace under the fear mongering war
criminal Hillary Clinton, the candidate of investors in war.
